North American Mill Capacity Database / 2019-2020 Subscription

In conjunction with the annual Multi-Client Study, Forisk produces a dataset of forest industry mill capacity in North America.

An annual subscription to Forisk’s “North American Forest Industry Capacity Database” provides database and shapefiles updates for four quarters. You may choose to receive data for all of North America, or a single region.

The Mill Capacity Database includes location, capacity, current wood use, and product data on over 1,400 wood-using mills in North America, along with announced and planned capacity changes or greenfield mill construction over the next two years by firm, mill type, and geography. Forisk’s Mill Capacity Database includes softwood sawmills, hardwood sawmills, plywood plants, OSB mills, wood-consuming pulp/paper mills, and wood pellet plants located in the United States and Canada.
